Research and development promoting quality and innovation
Hygiène & Nature boasts its own laboratory in France with its own research teams. The company develops its own formulas and takes part in research programmes, especially with a view to obtaining marketing authorisations.
Working on behalf of Hygiène & Nature and Compagnie du Midi, our R&D laboratory and engineers are attentive to what users have to say. They carry out systematic product-testing campaigns, in partnership with specialised or university laboratories, to develop long-term projects and present standardisation and certification documentation for the relevant products.
They conduct an on-going technological and regulatory watch.
Our certifications and labels mean we can constantly control our innovations.
Investing in industrial equipment and our workforce to transmit our know-how.
We regularly invest in our production sites and upgrade the manufacturing processes and flow management. The quality approach is ubiquitous throughout the production and packaging circuit. The different production sites receive regular investment to help them comply with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and to maintain their quality management system in line with the ISO 9001 standard.
The Prodef group has also invested in renovating Savonnerie du Midi to preserve traditional Marseille soap-manufacturing expertise. In 2018 it opened a museum dedicated to soap together with a shop.
